About Sex: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

without comments

Life is too short to look back, so you should not worry this much. My life philosophy is never regret what you have done. If you regret, you simply denied yourself and wasted the limited time in life. In your case, if you are not ready to settle down, why bother to find your Mr. Right? If you insist on doing so because people say it’s right, don’t do it. Go with your feelings and do what you feel like doing. If you’re worried about being labeled a slut, don’t be a slut! You can go out and enjoy yourself as much as you want. Having fun is not wrong! I understand your worries; most of the time, girls are more restricted by social rules. Single guys playing around are considered bachelors; single girls doing the same thing around are categorized as sluts. It’s not very fair. It’s very common for girls to know what they want but not have the courage to do it. My suggestion is to always protect yourself, both physically and emotionally. As long as you can handle it, you can be a playgirl too. It’s not easy: if you’re like most girls, you will go through a process wherein you judge yourself and feel guilty. I call it the self-struggling period, but it’s a must if you want to have fun and enjoy your life. Once you pass that period, you will be emotionally safe from others’ judgement. For physical protection, you know what to do, girl! Just be true to your heart, be safe and you will be fine.

Mooncake Madness: The Most Popular Cakes of the season

without comments

Mooncakes are a remnant of China’s moon-worshipping past, when women of the family would put up home altars and get the family together for a celebration all things lunar. One fanciful tale tells of a woman named Chang’e who lives on the moon pounding medicine for the gods with a trusty rabbit by her side. Naturally, such superstitious folk customs were swept away after the Red liberation, but mooncakes were deemed a harmless part of the ancient tradition and have survived to the modern day.

These waxy “treats” are somewhat like the “fruitcake” of China–an ubiquitous seasonal pastry that few actually like, yet everyone feels compelled to gift each other with. They obviously are supposed to resemble the full moon, but we think it looks (and some say, tastes) more like a fancy hockey puck.

Strangely, the packaging is often way more appealing than the cakes themselves—but leave it to China to find ways to use these blinged-out boxes for seedier purposes: a covert method of bribery.

The Classic

The traditional mooncake has a filling of lotus paste and a salty egg yolk, although there are several other “classic” fillings, from red bean paste and black sesame to a five-nut filling that’s chewy and granola-y. Check out Daoxiangcun for the old-school mooncake. They sell them individually, so if you want to try this Chinese tradition for yourself, there’s no better place to go.

Mooncake 2.0

Let’s face it: few find mooncakes very appealing. However, some clever bakeries around town have taken the hint and are making tasty interpretations of the hum-drum mooncake.

Haagen-Dazs: This is the hottest mooncake in the city–and with good reason. Haagen-Dazs ice cream dipped in chocolate? We just wish these could be sold year-round. If you can’t get your hands on these elegant little treats (they sell out in the height of summer, typically), try the low-rent version of the same thing at Dairy Queen.

Pie House: Not only are these “mooncakes” pretty, but break through the rich coating foran intense hit of flavor. We especially liked the green tea and peanut butter chocolate.

Colibri: Really. This moon-cupcake can scarcely be called a proper mooncake, but in a nod to tradition, Colibri’s cupcakes have taken on the flavors of old: red bean, lotus, jasmine and black sesame.

Just Plain Weird

Who says the Chinese aren’t creative? We’ve seen a slew of mooncakes that subvert the staid mooncake tradition and are making exciting, unexpected or incredibly bizarre concoctions. We also dig the genius behind mooncakes for your dog–because it’s apparently a really bad idea to give your pets the real thing.

Chain bakery Bread Talk takes cute to another level: Hello Kitty … in a box. For the kids or the people in your life who refuse to grow up.

Angry Bird mooncakes are actually very traditional. It’s lotus paste with salty egg yolk in the middle. Which actually makes perfect sense.

There’s more than one full moon out tonight … Our most-wanted: cheeky mooncakesfrom Hong Kong-based Goods of Desire.

An entreprenuing bakery in Nanjing makes a cool-looking Chinese chess set made of mooncakes. Because nothing says victory like eating your captured enemies.
